Ways to Improve the Performance of Your Android TV box

Post date:



If you’ve got an Android TV box, there are a ton of different things you can do with it. But if the performance of your device is lagging, you might want to consider clearing out some unwanted apps and files from your device. Here are some ways to improve the performance:

Uninstall Unwanted Apps

Second, you can remove any apps that are on your Android TV box that you don’t use. If there is an app you don’t want to see in your app drawer anymore, go ahead and uninstall it. You may have already come across a couple of apps on your device that seems redundant or unwanted. For example, I had two different music players installed because I thought they were both needed but when it came down to it only one was used more than the other and so I uninstalled the other one.

The best way to manage your installed apps is through the Google Play Store itself. Here you will find all of them listed in alphabetical order along with their size and date installed/updated information if available. You can sort this list by date installed or date updated as well if needed so it is quite simple really!

Move to a faster Wi-Fi connection

You may have heard that, in order to stream smoothly, your home’s internet connection should be fast. But what if your Wi-Fi connection is the bottleneck?

If this is the case, you can improve your streaming speed with a few simple steps. The first thing you should try is moving your box closer to the router—you may find that moving it just a few feet will make all the difference. If that doesn’t help, try upgrading to an extender or changing channels on your router (if applicable).

Clear cache and residual files

The android box for television stores its files in a temporary location called the cache. Clearing the cache can free up space on your hard drive and improve performance by reducing the number of files that need to be accessed at any given time. If you don’t regularly clear it, this storage will fill up over time, slowing down your device even more as it desperately tries to find room for new data!

Use an Android TV box booster app

If you’re looking to make sure your Android TV box is running at its optimal performance, then you’ll want to try out a booster app. These apps can clear out unnecessary files and apps that might be slowing down your device. They can also optimize the device for the best performance possible.

Reset your device to factory settings

To reset your device to factory settings, follow these steps:

Hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds and release it when you see a message appear on the screen saying “Power Off” or “Rebooting.” This is known as a hard reset and will erase all of your data stored in memory (including apps and settings). If you pressed the wrong button by mistake, press it again to turn off the box. Then hold down another button for a few seconds until it restarts into booting mode (you should see text scrolling across your screen).

Once there is no more text scrolling across your screen and you are back at square one with just an Android logo displayed, press and hold down both buttons on your remote control simultaneously until prompted by another screen asking if you want to restore factory defaults—this will offer up two options: Continue or Cancel; select Continue.
